Echoes of Dead Voices

Echoes of dead voices letterhead NEW 2.png

Written and narrated by Angela Ransley

Shakira Tsindos, Mezzo Soprano
Sasha Grynyuk, Piano

ECHOES OF DEAD VOICES tells the fascinating story of the beginning of recorded sound, initially in France and leading to the invention of Edison’s phonograph in America in the 1880s. Efforts were made to capture the celebrated figures of the day and we will hear leading actor HENRY IRVING, a performance by JOHANNES BRAHMS, Lord TENNYSON reading The Charge of the Light Brigade, Florence Nightingale, and The Lost Chord by Arthur Sullivan, thought to be the first recording made in England. Due to the technical limitations of the time, each recording lasts no more than two minutes. We will hear each piece performed live by rising actors and musicians.

This is an original production devised and narrated by pianist and teacher ANGELA RANSLEY making full use of the superb audio-visual facilities at Foyles. Our event offers a unique insight into this technological breakthrough that permeates our lives today.

A  fundraising  event  for  World  Sight  Day in  aid  of Sightsavers.
